    I made an unfair review before based on some super subjective issues I had. The author reached out to me to not only thank me for my lack of recommendation but offered to even help me make the changes to make it what I wanted (I had done this before but some of the newer changes would have taken a lot more time to revert/change). But I was not being honest with myself that I wouldn't recommend the romhack after I literally followed it for 2 years on the forum. It deserves recommendations even if its to use as a base for your own personal changes.

Super Robot Taisen J

Game Boy Advance

Game Description:

This game is a strategy game with giant robots, and a giant robots fan’s wet dream. You take a load of mecha and characters from all sorts of mecha series, mish-mash their stories into one, and let them duke it out on the battlefield. You finish the chapter, earn some money, upgrade your mechs, rinse and repeat.

Super Robot Wars J is everything you could expect from a SRW game. Looooong, smooth attack animations, an assload of mecha and accompanying characters and a sinister plot of a sinister man to conquer or destroy the world.

It’s a pretty hard game at times in your first playthrough, because you get a big pile of mechs from the get-go and only so much money to upgrade them. And all the while enemy units are getting more and more powerful. It gets easier over the playthroughs after that, because you keep all upgrades from precurring ones.

Translation Description:

This is the complete translation of Super Robot Wars J by the Romhacking Aerie.

I like it!

Reviewed By: Chronosplit on 13 Feb 2014

This translation is one of the best for an SRW game I’ve seen yet. It feels pretty much like I just stepped straight from Original Generation to this, it is indeed that good.

The dialog is done just about expertly (even handling the common “damn everywhere” thing you see in so many translations correctly! That’s bonus points!), and I was able to understand the text just as well as any game brought over to here.

I’ve only seen one bug in this entire thing: during a battle, some spirit commands in a Robot’s status (not the spirit command menu itself) such as Assault have a blank space, but that is a positively microscopic nitpick and you won’t even notice unless you’re looking extremely close.

I would say that this translation is on par with professional (uncensored) localizations, and better than some localizations of some mecha shows themselves. A must play translation for a must play game for anyone who is a fan of mecha or turn based strategy in general.
